Hello Dolls and Gents, 

Today I want to tackle the difference between BB Creams and Tinted Moisturizer because I know many of us, who do not know the difference between these two. I am going to be honest, I did not know the difference between them until I educated myself about it. So, I thought if I did not know the difference that means there others who may not know as well. So, if you like to know more, just keep on reading. 

BB creams stands for Blemish Balm Cream, which was created in Germany by dermatologists who helped patients undergo laser skin surgery. The product to to help sooth and regenerate the skin. The craze of BB cream begin in Korea when famous actresses begin to wear on their face. It slowly started to brand out of Korea to Japan to China, Singapore and other parts of Asia, which became a hot trend. Most of the BB creams that was created in only in one shade, but many companies have created more shades.
